Dig it.

David is a freelance copywriter/filmmaker in Austin, Texas. In addition to projects for MetLife, Amstel Light, Verizon, and Heineken on his site, you can view the trailer for his first feature film, Spoiler Alert. Love to see a copywriter who’s pursuing big screen dreams at the same time. Big ups!

Dan is a senior copywriter at Publicis in Seattle. Since his last post on MC (on 01.21.13), he’s added all kinds of killer projects to his site, including MC’s favorite Super Bowl spot of 2016 featuring Drake for T-Mobile. Awesome script, Drake is brilliant, plus “Can we come in the box?” at the end. Doesn’t get better than that.

Since his last post on MC (back on 12.04.14), he’s added a bunch of new projects to his site including Adoptable Trends, which turns shelter dogs into trending topics by naming them things like “Kim Kardashian’s Butt.” So smart. So cute! (The dog, not the butt.)

Including lighting the 26-foot high Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree (above), which looks like inspiration for MC’s 2016 front yard holiday display. Yes, please. Welcome back, Mr. Mitchell.

Garrett is a junior copywriter at Publicis Seattle (as of April 2016, big congrats!). And yet, the index page of his Cargo site is so old. You’ll understand when you see it.

Together, they’ve launched a real dating app for bacon lovers called Sizzl (Oscar Mayer, client) that’s been getting all kinds of crazy press. It’s hot. It’s fresh. It’s crispy. MC is in love.

Jose is a copywriter at Dieste in Chicago. He’s also a professional skateboarder who did some time at Second City. (Proving once again that drummers, comedians and surfers/skateboarders make great copywriters.) So cool to see how writers like Jose jump from one ad culture to another—and one language to another. A good idea is a good idea.

Michelle is a copywriter/ACD at Code and Theory in NYC. Lots of great work all over her site, but extra big ups for her project Rethink Breast Cancer. So awesome to see a CW using her powers for good, and it doesn’t get much gooder than Breast Cancer: The Musical (above). Dig it.

It’s one those sites where you go, “Oh, that campaign. And that campaign. And he did that campaign, too. Geeeez.” Just awesome.

Jayant is Creative Copy Group Head at Publicis in Mumbai, India. How does a copywriter get a campaign of straight-up palindromes in his portfolio? When it’s a campaign for the Skoda Laura with Parktronic, which drives the same forward or backward. Tip o’ the Hat, Jayant. Palindromes!
